Pre Academy

In partnership with Hollands & Blair



The Soccer Elite FA Pre Academy gives youngsters in school years R and 1 the ultimate introduction into the beautiful game.

Pre Academy sessions emphasise fun and engagement, with a key focus of ensuring players fall in love with the beautiful game. This is achieved through exciting and structured sessions delivered by engaging and highly-qualified coaches, with the aim developing players with an excellent foundation of technical skill with ball mastery, achieved through a mix of opposed and unopposed practices as well as small sided games. Focus is also given to building social skills and confidence, with players being encouraged interact with their peers and the coaches within the sessions.

Upon graduating from the Pre Academy, players at our Medway centre have a pathway into the Hollands & Blair youth teams, with players at both our Maidstone and Medway centres then also graduating into the main Soccer Elite FA Academy.

All new players are entitled to a no-obligation FREE taster session. To register your interest, please fill in the form at the bottom of the page!
